Cohesive, the digital integrator business unit of Bentley Systems, announced that it has acquired MaximoCon, a Brazil-based consultancy that specializes in technical services for IBM Maximo.
This move is in line with Cohesive’s goal to be a global leader in digital engineering systems integration and to help infrastructure owner-operators deliver transformational and sustainable outcomes.
MaximoCon, founded in 2015, offers both technical and functional senior-level expertise to Maximo implementations. The company has already worked with Cohesive on a variety of global Maximo systems integration projects and is a long-time partner. With this acquisition, MaximoCon will operate as an integral part of Cohesive, expanding its technical and functional delivery resources, activating more teams and increasing depth in skill for enterprise asset management projects.
This acquisition will allow Cohesive to expand its expertise in Maximo and gain access to the South American market, enabling clients to make data-driven decisions and drive better ESG outcomes around efficiency, reliability, and sustainability. This is a big priority for Cohesive’s clients and a key part of the digital twin core capability.
“We have been partnering with MaximoCon on many projects and are excited to welcome them to the Cohesive family,” said Mark Bew, CEO of Cohesive. “Adding MaximoCon to our global team will further expand the already deep expertise we have in Maximo and drive more efficient delivery for our clients.”
Leonardo Bastos, executive of MaximoCon, said, “We are thrilled to join Cohesive and enhance the delivery of their implementations around IBM Maximo. Pairing the senior technical expertise of our firm with Cohesive’s deep experience of process, industry, and digital solutions provides a truly integrated and end-to-end experience for our clients.”
This acquisition is a significant step for Cohesive in achieving its goal to be a global leader in digital engineering systems integration and to help infrastructure owner-operators deliver transformational and sustainable outcomes. With the addition of MaximoCon to its team, Cohesive can continue to provide clients with the best possible solutions and services.
